Did y’all hear about Beachbody’s new workout program, Country Heat?? It arrives in July 2016, but here are answers to some of the most common questions… FAQ style.
What is Country Heat?
Country Heat is a high-energy, low-impact, country dance-inspired fitness program that so totally fires up the fun—you won’t even feel like you’re working out! Each 30 minute dance routine is packed with easy-to-follow moves set to good ‘ol country music. All you have to do is follow along!
Who is Country Heat for?
Country Heat is for you if you are looking for a simple, fun and effective way to lose weight and get fit. I’ve been doing the sneak peek workout – Country Swing – on the days when I need a little less intensity than my current program, Insanity Max:30. Or on those days I just want to move a little more without feeling like I’m exercising.
Is this for beginners?
It’s perfect for beginners, and it’s also a great cardio workout for people at all fitness levels who like to dance or want to stay in shape. More advanced exercisers can simply add intensity.
I can’t dance. Can I do this?
If you are intimidated by complex dance choreography (and I know some of you have been frustrated by Cize!) this would be a great fit. There are no complicated moves… just follow along and you will be dancing from day one.
In Country Heat Autumn teaches you two steps at a time, you do those, and move on to the next two steps. There is no memorization or learning a routine, unlike Cize or typical country line dancing.
Is it high impact?
No. It’s perfect for people like me with knee issues. So if you’ve struggled with higher intensity programs in the past (TurboFire, Insanity, 21 Day Fix Extreme) this will be refreshingly easy on your joints.
What country songs will I hear?
It’s country music at its finest. If you are a fan of country music, you will probably recognize most of the music. The songs were chosen not only because they are popular and fun, but also to create a mix of faster and slower beats. This creates automatic interval training within each routine.
This is not a complete list, but you will hear: Young and Crazy, Fake ID, Sideways, Footloose, Bar Hoppin’ , Kick the Dust Up, Crash and Burn, All About Tonight, Be My Baby Tonight, I Like It I Love It and, of course, the classic Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy).
There is even a new song from country artist Jo Dee Messina, “Night Crawl” , written exclusively for Country Heat.
Will I lose weight doing Country Heat?
This is a “YES, BUT” answer. You will lose weight IF:
- Weight loss is your goal;
- You do all the workouts to the best of your ability;
- You follow the meal plan, which is designed for weight loss.
What is the Country Heat release date?
Country Heat will be released on July 27, 2016 – at Beachbody’s Coach Summit. That means I’ll be buying my copy while celebrating with other coaches in Nashville, and can dance/workout right in my hotel room!
How long is the program?
Thirty days. Each week has 6 days of workouts and one rest day.
How long are the workouts?
The workouts are 20-30 minutes. With Country Heat you can totally obliterate the “I don’t have time” excuse.
How many workouts are included?
There are six workouts on 3 DVD’s in the basic program. Plus, you’ll get a bonus workout if you purchase from a coach – like me.
- Country Swing
- Giddy Up
- Down and Dirty
- Bring the Heat
- Trail Ride
- Dance Conditioning
Bonus workout (when purchasing from Team Beachbody): Dance Mash-Up
The Deluxe Kit (which I’ll describe in more detail below) also includes:
- Wild Goose Chase
- Cardio Round Up
- Saddle Up Line Dance
Will Country Heat be available in Beachbody on Demand?

Who is the trainer?
Autumn Calabrese is a celebrity fitness trainer, professionally trained dancer, and working mom. Her first Beachbody workout program, 21 Day Fix, is Beachbody’s #1 selling program for the past two years, and she is co-creator of The Master’s Hammer and Chisel workout program. A lifelong fan of country music, Autumn collaborated with Beachbody to create this new dance workout that’s guaranteed to turn up the fun—and melt away the fat!
How much space do I need?
About six square feet of space is recommended. Just move the coffee table and you can be groovin’ in your living room.
Is there a modifier?
Yes. One of the cast members will show lower intensity modifications for all of the moves.
Do I need weights or equipment?
Is there a Country Heat Eating Plan?
Yes, and if you have done the 21 Day Fix you will recognize the cute, colorful portion control containers! Country Heat’s nutrition plan is based on clean eating portion control. Your kit will come with a set of containers and the nutrition guide will help you calculate what foods to eat and how much, based on your unique goals.
Does the Country Heat Meal Plan include gluten-free, vegan or vegetarian options?
With any of Beachbody’s portion control meal plans YOU choose what types of foods you eat – fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds, grains, lean protein, etc. So you can definitely choose gluten free options (as I do) or make vegetarian or vegan choices.
